CEDIA Expo Attendance Rises

This year's CEDIA Expo in Atlanta drew more than 20,700 attendees, which represented "modest growth" from last year's total. In addition, CEDIA said, 20 percent of the attendees were at CEDIA Expo for the first time. The Expo also saw a six percent increase in exhibitors from 2009, to 453. “The steady booth traffic, the increase in exhibiting companies, and the number of new attendees are all early indicators that our industry is poised for a resurgence,” CEDIA CEO Utz Baldwin said in a statement. “The product knowledge and education that attendees take away from CEDIA EXPO 2010 will help them take advantage of emerging opportunities and will position their businesses for continued success.”

Roku Takes on Apple TV

This week, Roku, a company based in Saratoga, California, launched a new lineup of video players designed to stream high-definition content from Internet destinations such as Netflix, Amazon, and Pandora. The cost will be $60 for a basic player and $100 for one that offers a variety of ways to connect to other devices. Both are equipped for high-definition playback. Roku was one of the first companies to stream Internet content to televisions; it released its first video player in May 2008. Since then, the market for Internet-connected set-top boxes for televisions has become much more crowded. Competition is intense because, along with free shows and clips, the Internet can be used to deliver premium, cable-like content. An Internet-connected set-top box can also be used to deliver ads that are closely tailored to viewing habits. "People are zeroing in on the same answer from multiple directions," says David Krall, Roku's president. Roku has about 700,000 users--far fewer than the number of Apple iTunes users out there--but the company hopes to attract users by offering lower-cost hardware and high performance.

Blockbuster finally files for Chapter 11

Blockbuster has had a rough few years, but this one has been especially painful. First, its shares were delisted from the New York Stock Exchange. And now, as expected, it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization as it struggles to compete with online video-rental service Netflix and the rental-kiosk phenomena. Calling it "pre-arranged recapitalization," Blockbuster announced today that it has filed Chapter 11 petitions in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. The reorganization encompasses only the company's U.S.-based operations and stores that it wholly owns. International operations and franchises are not included in the filing, Blockbuster said. However, the reorganization does encompass quite a bit. According to the company, all of its stores, by-mail service, and streaming operation are included in the proceedings. Blockbuster is also planning to take a harder look at its operations. Although its 3,000 stores are still operating normally, Blockbuster said, it plans to "evaluate its U.S. portfolio." If and when it emerges from Chapter 11, Blockbuster expects to be in a better position to compete against Netflix and its other rivals.
